Hayley and Dominic – the story of their February wedding at Winters Barns

I’m finally able to blog the full story of Hayley and Dominic’s wedding last February. As they were featured in the Your Kent Wedding Magazine and then won the “Wedding of the Year” competition, there’s been a bit of a delay in posting their images.

But now I can – and I am delighted to do so! Hayley and Dominic booked me on the strength of a recommendation from Charlotte, one of Hayley’s lifelong friends and bridesmaids. When I arrived at Winters Barns, there were hailstones on the ground and torrential rain. Then blue skies. Then strong gusts of wind. Then rain. Then … you get the picture!

After taking a look around the venue when I arrived, I could see that Hayley and Dominic’s wedding was running true to their theme – as Hayley had chosen the Alfred Angelo design named Ariel from their Disney collection, the colour scheme of charcoal and pink was highlighted in the bridesmaids dresses, the bridal favours, the flowers, the seating plan … in fact, almost everywhere!

Although the wedding was in February, and the weather somewhat changeable, we were able to get outside for some bride and groom portrait shots – Hayley and Dominic were really invested in their photography and happy to work with me to get the results that we all wanted – and it was totally worth it …

It was so cold and windy but Hayley and Dominic were amazing and powered on through. And it was totally worth it. We had to take the formal shots inside the barn itself and then moved on to speeches …
